The first geography club trip this year was to the World Music Fest in Chicago. It was really chilly, which I would’ve liked if not for the rain that accompanied the cold weather throughout the entire day.

The train ride took forever and we were all just so ready to stuff our mouths with food. We ate at a cafe near Millennium Park. I was gonna get a soup and hot chocolate but I wasn’t ready yet when the lady asked me for my order so I just said the first thing I saw on the menu, which was a panini lol. I’m really undecisive and bad at talking to other people.

The first musicians who played were Pablo Menendez & Mezcla from Cuba. They played for an hour but we didn’t see the whole thing because we were still eating when they began.

The second one was La Bottine Souriante from Québec. Their music was really catchy and everyone in our group was dancing, including my teacher. He probably danced the most out of everyone at the concert and I was just feeling embarrassed for him lol. There was also a lot of tap dancing by the band. When they ended, my teacher was chanting, “One more song!” and he sounded like he was on the verge of tears haha.

Th Bean at night! My camera failed me on the moment I needed it the most. There was moisture inside the lens and it wouldn’t evaporate quickly, hence the blurs on the next pictures.

Annalee and I with matching Gryffindor scarves! There was a bunch of people who complimented us. Potterheads everywhere~

We saw ABC News getting ready to film. We just kept on waving at them hoping they would show us on tv. Sadly, they didn’t.

The city lights were so pretty.

We got home at 11:30 pm and I just flopped myself on the bed when I got home. It was a great night filled with really good music!

I kinda dread highschool... already. I'm only a freshmen and I feel like I have it rough. I always get a bad feeling whenever I think about school or just going to school. I don't even know why I act like a different person at school.. all quiet with a serious face.. I don't want thid year to be weak.. ah.

I was a little dreadful as well before entering high school because of the new people and environment. Looking back, my freshman year was filled with great experiences like making new friends, exploring new places, and simply having a good laugh everyday. I also became more responsible with schoolwork and I pushed myself to be a better student.

Why do you get a bad feeling about school? Did you have bad experiences in the past? You can always talk to your parents and/or teachers about it and come up with a solution. Talking to your friends will also be a great help since you all are going through the same things and they know you.

I also act quite differently when I’m at school. I’m not as irritable as I am at home and I’m quieter. I guess it’s because I let my guard up when there’s a lot of people around me. I was very shy too but I wanted to be more outgoing so I started talking more to people. Maybe try to smile a little to help elevate your mood and give a welcoming vibe to people.

You should make the most out of high school (not in the yolo way lol). Four years go by too fast and you only get to experience high school once in your life. Hope you have a good day!

Yesterday comprised of me trying to take self-portraits for photography class, although I kinda cheated and asked my cousin (who was not willing to oblige) to take pictures of me instead. Most of them did not turn out well so I need to redo them. It would be so much easier if we could just take photos of other people instead of ourselves, but that would obviously ruin the point of the lesson.

Oh, and I made a new Twitter account! I downloaded the archive of my old one and I just wanna cry at how stupid my tweets were from 4 years ago. Well, pretty much everything I put on all my social media accounts when I was 12 were really embarrassing. I’m just going to try to delete all my posts from before lol.

Random thoughts on a rainy day: Should I do Just Sweat or Just Dance tomorrow morning? Or maybe I should run? But my mom won’t allow me even though I’m 16 years old. Ugh. I need to write a to-do list for tomorrow so I won’t forget the things I want to do. Can I not read this 26-paged packet? And I still need to finish that stupid book for English. Why did I even buy that book. The characters are so stupid I can’t even. The mom was like, “I can feel the young breasts of my child while she hugged me.” I don’t know anymore. This is just like that Lucy movie. “I can feel your warm milk on my mouth when I was still a baby.” What in the world. I think I should redo my homework for Spanish. It’s so ugly. Hmmm, nahhh. I already redid it 3 times. How am I going to tour the new students around the school. I don’t even know where my classes are. I. hate. this. wifi. connection. This tv won’t connect to the wifi too. I still need to watch 7 episodes of Death Note. What anime should I watch next? I can’t find a hospital that has an available volunteering opportunity whyy. And my driver’s ed teacher told me he’ll send me the available schedules for driving in 24 hours or less. More than 48 hours have already passed. I can’t pass my high score on Amazing Brick huhu. Do I not deserve to get a 30? Am I that worthless? *thinks more about my mistakes for the past 10 years* 

And yup, my pictures don’t have any connection whatsoever with what I wrote. As usual.
